Mario Cottarelli's Information


progressive rock

About Us:
Born in Cremona (Italy) in 1956, Mario Cottarelli begins to devote himself to music in 1970 as an autodidact drummer. Two years later, he learns to play guitar in a similar fashion. In 1973-1974, he strengthens his knowledge of music by taking electric organ and jazz harmony courses. As early as 1972, Cottarelli is composing his first songs. Increasingly keen on the progressive-rock genre, by the mid-1970s his pieces become accordingly longer and more complex; however Mario is not yet able to produce demos of sufficiently high technical quality. Only in 1977-78 he presents his first demos to record companies, but it's too late: the italian record industry is no longer interested in progressive-rock. Only the alternative company Divergo offers him a chance to cut a record. However, the project is not completed because the company closes down a short time later. At this point, Cottarelli decides to opt for a more commercial style of music. After graduating with a degree in biology in 1982, Mario makes a forey into dance music, recording several songs as a composer and arranger during 1984-1988. Some of these songs become known around Europe. During this period, among other things, he works with Ivana Spagna and Claudio Simonetti. As of 1993, Cottarelli writes music and lyrics for many italian folk and melodic dance bands. However, over time, Mario realizes that progressive-rock is the kind of music he needs to fully express his personality. At long last, in 2005, he revisits some pieces he had composed in 1975. He rearranges them, changes the lyrics, plays and records them by himself. The result is the Cd "Prodigiosa macchina", published by New Lm Records (Ravenna, Italy) in November 2007. In september 2011 New Lm records publishes a new cd of Mario Cottarelli: "Una strana commedia"; it contains five pieces composed by Cottarelli from 1974 to 1981, rearraged, played and recorded by himself in 2010-2011. ************************************** *************** You can download "Prodigiosa macchina" and "Una strana commedia" on iTunes, and many other digital stores, and you can buy the Cd on New Lm Records' website

TELL EVERY ONE ABOUT IMRadio -- Got to thinking. What if each of us independent musicians told our family, friends, fans and acquaintances about, how besides the main station, it has stations for each of the states individually, 52 countries, and just about every musical genre -- reaching any internet connection around the world. We could tell them in person, on the internet or at small or large venues. Anyone we tell would appreciate the convenience of such good music from independent musicians on their computer. It would be such a good way to help all of us reach even more listeners. With IMRadio, we aren't just waiting at the mercy of some major label to decide whether or not they will let us be heard around the world. There are enough of us that the outreach could be exponential. And, wouldn't it be a great way to say 'thank you' to Paddy and all of the other fine folks who have put on the world's musical map. They have put in money, time, energy and dedication, and all they have asked of us in return is to upload our music and profile. I am sure that they have great plans to publicize IMRadio and bring it to even more listeners. In the meantime, through, wouldn't it be great if we could all help a little by just taking a little time each day to tell family, friends, fans and acquaintances about IMRadio. It wouldn't cost a dime, just a little time. Yours, in Musical Solidarity, Paul.
